Deacons' Care Groups
A Deacon at SPC is a member of the congregation who has been elected by the congregation for a 3-year term to be on the Board of Deacons. Ordained deacons are called to a ministry of “compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress" (PC(USA) Book of Order G-2.0201). Additionally, Deacons support the members of SPC through responsibility for a Deacon Care Group.
As a member of Shallotte Presbyterian Church, you are enfolded into a Deacon Care Group. Your Group's Deacon is a good point of contact to gain or share information about the life of the church. If you would like to know more about your Care Group, contact your Deacon or the church office.
